METALLICA BASSIST RESURRECTS OLD SIDE PROJECT

Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo has reactivated his side project Mass Mental for a short run of shows late this month and early in September. The first gig took place on Tuesday night (August 26th) at the Whisky-A-Go-Go in Los Angeles and will be followed by a performance in Germany on September 6th at the Warwick & Framus musical instruments manufacturing company.

The performance at the Whisky featured a guest appearance from Ugly Kid Joe and Another Animal singer Whitfield Crane.

Mass Mental was founded in 1999 by Trujillo and includes members of the underground metal and punk acts Skindred and Dub War.

The band released one studio album in 1999, How To Write Love Songs, along with a concert set titled Live In Tokyo. Both were made available exclusively in Japan.

Trujillo recently appeared at his Metallica bandmate Kirk Hammett's "Fear FestEvil After Party" during San Diego's Comic-Con International last month, where the pair jammed with members of Jane's Addiction, King's X and Death Angel.
